If they don’t get you swinging, you ain't got soul...

Motor City Soul deliver fiery and funky sets of classic Motown, Atlantic and rare Northern soul, just the way it used to be.

Playing some of the greatest tunes ever written, expect them to recreate Detroit’s golden age of music masterfully, whilst they get you up and dancing, in a way that only a full brass backed soul band really can.

The band are highly regarded regulars on the London soul scene, holding down a number of residencies across the capital’s most popular nightspots. They have extensive experience catering for corporate functions (including Spotify, and Shazam – who both know their music!), weddings, parties and festivals.

Offering a flexible line up (7-10 piece) to suit your space and budget, they can also provide a searing soul DJ set, and an instrumental jazz quartet for subtle background music before the full evening show.
